Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Development set to start under Codename ‘Baikal’

Samsung Galaxy Note 8

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is next in the line of production right after Samsung is done with the current Galaxy S8 and S8+.

The phone will still be released despite what happened when Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was launched in August last year. The company has already promised to deliver a phablet that is much better and safer to the world after discovering the cause of the fires of the Note 7.

Apparently, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has already been approved for development and if the latest reports are to be believed, the phone will be called Project Baikal, but this has nothing to do with the famous Lake Baikal that hails from Russia’s Siberia. The teaser doesn’t reveal any further details of the Galaxy Note 8, but you can be sure that the S Pen will still be there when the phablet comes to life in the second half of 2017.

Even though still early, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is expected to come with features such as 4K screen resolution, Bixby AI voice assistant, Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box, iris scanning technology as well as keep the curved dual-edge design of the Note 7 and S8.

One interesting feature of the Galaxy Note 8 that everyone is looking forward to is the screen size. Given that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 will be slightly bigger than the past several Galaxy Note series handsets, it remains unclear whether Samsung will keep the same screen size for the Note 8 or if it’ll get even bigger, probably closer, equal or larger than the Galaxy S8+’s 6.2 inches. In 2015, Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ shared the same screen size of 5.7 inches, so don’t be surprised if the Galaxy Note 8 came in with a 6.2-inch screen similar to the S8+.

These are unconfirmed reports and as such, take them with a grain of salt, at least until Samsung says something about the said Galaxy Note 8. We’ll keep tracking the story and update you regularly!
